Joystiq got a hold on an official EA representative who in turn confirmed the development of a new SimCity title. Apparently the name SimCity Societies is just a working title, and it’s not yet the official name. Joystiq explains:
We’ve been told “it’s completely different from SimCity 4, so they’re trying to come up with something different than just calling it SimCity 5.”
Furthermore the game will be shown at the upcoming E3 event later this summer, so stay tuned for lots of goodies heading our way the coming months. The feature in Games for Windows Magazine should have arrived to subscribers yesterday and will hit the newsstands later this week.
